Governor Palin is on her way to the big Ted Cruz rally later this afternoon in Texas. She tweeted the following:
Looking forward to seeing some great patriots in Texas today and helping get out the vote for Ted Cruz! http://fb.me/23FQY6KLN
Here’s the latest information on the event from Ashley Killough at CNN:
The conservative elite will descend upon Texas this weekend, as some of the tea party’s biggest stars stand with Senate hopeful Ted Cruz in his bid against Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst in the state’s heated runoff.
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina and 2012 GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum will all stump for Cruz just days before Tuesday’s election. –
Palin and DeMint are scheduled to attend a get-out-the-vote rally in The Woodlands outside of Houston on Friday night, while Santorum is set to join Cruz at a rally outside of Dallas Saturday morning. Santorum will also be in town for a book signing at an event hosted by Glenn Beck.
“Looking forward to seeing some great patriots in Texas today and helping get out the vote for Ted Cruz!” Palin tweeted on Friday.
Palin has had a successful endorsement record in GOP primaries this year. The 2008 vice presidential nominee backed state treasurer Richard Mourdock in his takedown of longtime incumbent Sen. Dick Lugar in the Indiana Republican primary. She also endorsed Nebraska state Sen. Deb Fischer, who ultimately topped a crowded field of Republicans in the May contest, and Palin threw her voice behind incumbent Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah as he beat back his toughest primary challenge in decades.
“Sen. DeMint, Gov. Palin, and Sen. Santorum recognize that this race is now ground zero for the Tea Party movement in America, and that’s why they’re supporting Ted Cruz,” said James Bernsen, a spokesman for the candidate. “Politicians of both parties got us in this mess and we need strong leaders who will stand up for conservative principles in Washington, not go up there and forget about them once they get elected.”
It sounds like a great time, and it’s for a great cause. Let’s show the Establishment that we won’t sit down and shut up. If any of our readers are planning on attending, let us know in the comments. Any quality pictures or video would be appreciated. Support Ted Cruz here.
